Tomato Vada/ Stuff Tomato Vada/ Tomato Pakora




Today I post something different i.e. “Stuff Tomato Vada”, it’s three step recipe, under 1st step, we make gram flour and spices batter. In 2nd step, mash and add spices into boiled potatoes.  In 3rd step, add mixture into tomato halves and fry them.
Tomatoes are now eaten freely throughout the world, and their consumption is believed to benefit the heart, among other organs. They contain the carotene lycopene, one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. In some studies, lycopene, especially in cooked tomatoes, has been found to help prevent prostate cancer, but other research contradicts this claim. Lycopene has also been shown to improve the skin's ability to protect against harmful UV rays Natural genetic variation in tomatoes and their wild relatives has given a genetic plethora of genes that produce lycopene, carotene, anthocyanin, and other antioxidants. Tomato includes Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
